vote, those winds are undoubtedly shifting. >> president obama talks about the defeat of gun control during his first stop in mexico yesterday. want to show everybody. take a listen. >> the last time we had major gun legislation, it took six, seven, eight tries. things happen somewhat slowly in washington. but this is just the first round. >> so dan, as we know, the vice president was originally put in charge of helming a gun reform task force. we know that he is planning a new push for gun control, one that he hasn't even talked with the president about yet, but biden saying he plans to travel the country to push for manchin/toomey, the background check bill, and others that have failed. but gun control advocates seem to be making the case that this failure has been all about a lack of understanding. so is that the case or is this more a lack of cohesive unified approach? >> there has been tremendous cohesion in terms of the goal. i just want to kind of reframe what you just said a little bit. i mean, you know, progress has been made. this hasn't been an outright failure. the fact t
not so much before the attacks. does this cold war mentality that president obama talked about still hamper relations between the u.s. and russia? >> it appears to have been a problem in this case but really shouldn't. we've had relations with countries around the world which have been pretty rocky and yet on the counterterrorism level, it's been very, very good cooperation. even when i was in office at times that some other countries were not necessarily seeing eye to eye on iraq or other issues, at the law enforcement level there was always a lot of exchange of information because it's mutually important. this is important to the russians as it is to us. i would put some emphasis on making sure that our relationships with the russians or anybody else at this level are being maintained properly and so there is a good flow of cooperation. >> i've heard talk that one of the reasons why it might not have gone as swimmingly as it should have is because russia is always trying to convince the u.s. that the chechens with whom they're involved in this ugly, bloody war for years and years,
that president obama used to talk about overuse. in a speech he gave to congress in his first term, he mentioned it, that we need to curtail overuse. but i don't hear president obama talking about overuse anymore as a factor in reducing medicare spending. so once again it's going to be informed members of the public who will have to put it back on the agenda. citizens will have to be the ones to correct the misallocation of resources because it will not self-correct. while preparing for talk, i was thinking about what are some of the solutions, and i was in princeton, new jersey, a couple of weeks ago walking along nassau street, and there was a bookstore. and there was a quote in that book store about how democracy -- to fix our democracy, we need more democracy. we need more informed citizens who are aware of what's going on to serve as a countervailing influence, a check and balance in the system. i think the biggest challenge we face is that health care companies whose primary duty is to shareholders, they have to demonstrate increased revenue and profitability. they have to do that as a con

obama talks to students in mexico city about immigration reform. and the illegal guns from the u.s. wreaking havoc on their side of the border. >> i will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people, that can save lives here in mexico and back home in the united states. it's the right thing to do. >>> this is the nra kicks off its annual convention in texas with a pledge to keep fighting background checks. >> one. things we don't do is we don't mistake battles for wars. it was a victory in a battle. but the war continues. this is in essence, a family gathering for believers in the second amendment. >> and vice president joe biden joining secretary of state john kerry at the state department to pay tribute to diplomats killed in the line of duty. >> i wish we didn't need a wall like this. i wish i could tell all of you and all of you brilliant young state department personnel up there, i wish i could tell you we're not going to add any more names. kay christopher
importance to mexicans, also very important domestically to americans and president obama talked about that saying there's an economic imperative to tackling reform. >> i think it's important for everybody to remember that our shared border is more secure than it's been in years. illegal immigration attempts in the united states are near their lowest level in decades. and legal immigration continues to make both of our countries stronger and more prosperous, and more competitive. and this in part reflects the economic progress and greater opportunities here in mexico. i think this progress should help inform the debate in the united states, and i'm optimistic that we're finally going to get comprehensive immigration reform passed. >> president obama will deliver a speech here this morning and meet with mexican entrepreneurs and then it's to his second and final stomp on this mini-tour that he's doing of latin america. he'll be going to san jose, costa rica. there he'll join a summit of heads of state from central american nations as well as the dominican republic. a top concern for tho

on "first look", president obama is in mexico talking syria. the first woman ever on the fbi's list of most wanted terrorists. so much for spring. parts of minnesota, wisconsin and wyoming are digging their way out of up to 15 inches of snow. >>> plus the boston marathon bombers originally targeted the 4th of july. and a warning to all drivers. be careful when approaching the pay tolls. >>> good morning. hundreds of residents are being ordered out of their homes in southern california as a raging wildfire continues to burn more than 8,000 acres. red flag conditions have crews working overtime trying to contain a series of blazes on multiple fronts. stephanie stanton has the latest. >> reporter: officials are calling it the perfect storm for wildfires burning in southern california. dangerous santa ana winds and record temperatures fan flames just north of los angeles. fire destroyed homes, vehicles and anything in its path, including this agricultural complex. a smoke advisory was issued due to concerns of chemicals in the air. the blaze broke out early thursday morning. wind gusts up to 70
to take you back to the white house correspondents' dinner where president barack obama is talking about his offensive in washington. >> i am not giving up. in fact, i'm taking my charm offense on the road. a texas barbecue with ted cruz. kentucky blue grass concert with rand paul. and a book burning with michele bachmann. my charm offense has helped me learn a few things in congress. it turns out, absolutely nothing. but the point of my charm offensive is simple. we need to make progress on simple issues. take the sequester. republicans fell in love with this thing and now they can't stop talking about how much they hate it. it's like we're trapped in a taylor swift album. one senator who has reached across the aisle recently is marco rubio. but i don't know about 2016. i mean, the dguy has not even finished a single term in the senate and he thinks he's ready to be president. kids these days. i, on the other hand, have run my last campaign. on thursday, as ed mentioned, i went to the opening of the bush presidential library in dallas. it was a wonderful event and that inspired me to ge
of perfection. >>> president obama has talked about red lines. >> yes. >> do you think bashar al assad has crossed a red line? >> not just for one time. many, many times, he crossed the red line. >> that was the military leader of rebels in syria talking exclusively to our richard engel about allegations that forces loyal to president assad has used chemical weapons in their desperate battle to king to power. we're joined by richard and steve. rich, the president said that he hasn't seen a clear chain of custody that tells us who's been using chemical weapons in syria. but it seems like the chain of custody is all too clear for the rebel leader that you interviewed. >> he said the chain of custody is clear because not all the evidence they have uncovered, but because no one other than bashar al assad's regime could have used chemical weapons. he said the weapons were three times dropped by fighter jets, the rebels don't have fighter jets and that one time were delivered by a scud and they don't have those either. based on the description of the evidence, these are hair samples, blood sampl
. for beingso much here. let's talk about what we learned last week and president obama talking about the potential of a chemical weapons. evan mcmorris-santoro, where we add in this? why is the white house's stance significant? guest: there has been a lot of debate. the obama administration said a few months ago, they drew the proverbial red line about chemical weapons, the idea that of chemical weapons were used, they would cross the line and we would see engagement. that is what people read about that. there were reports that some chemical weapons may have been used. shortly thereafter, the white house was engaged on that and some observers felt they change the way the red line works. the white house says it was a systematic use. we're seeing a lot of discussion about persian towards what might be u.s. involvement. it's unfair to say that will happen or not. the white house is now talking about using chemical weapons and what it means for how the united states in gauges. host: the associated press has this headline -- obama's syrian caution. one of the conversations going on in con
to do it. >> president obama in mexico city talking about immigration reform. that is front and center next yeek. back with the panel. mara, where do you think we stand and the bill of the gang of eight stands. >> i think the bill is resilient and there are head wind and big pockets of republican recestance. but i am impressed by the depth of the coalition behind it. business community and conservative activist and entire republican establishment and marco rubio and i think it is chugging along and pass the senate and will be the house to pass citizen does that have a path to citizenship or not. the president was cheer in the press conference, he will not sign something without a pass for citizenship. i think we are going to end up with something. it is one of those rare things that are in the party's political interest to do and that's why i think it will get done. >> senator reid trying to do everything to get it across the finish line. you will have stiff opposition in the house and senator sessions in the senate, where do you think it stands . >> it is it in pretty good shape. it w

power and yet there's president obama today exasperated, talking about how his hands are tied hereby can do nothing. it is a national security matter on which he just has no authority to fix the problem. because even as the cheney doctrine of executive power lives on and the congress wants to foist on the presidency the constitutionally inconceivable power to wage war forever on his own say-so without checking with anybody, despite all that, on this one issue on an offshore issue in communist cuba, on this one thing the congress has decided to get up on its hynde legs and tell the president, no, mr. president, you are don't get to decide, we do. >> i've asked to review everything we've done in guantanamo, and i'm going to reengage with congress to try to make the case that this is not something in the best interest of the american people and it's not sustainable. the notion we're going to continue to keep over a hundred individuals in no man's land in perpetuity, even at a time when we've wound down the war in iraq, we're winding down the war in afghan stan, we're having success defeatin
and says religious leaders will not be obligated to officiate any marriage ceremony. >> president obama has wrapped up talks with mexico's recently elected president. they covered a range of issues from trade to illegal drugs and, of course, border security. but for now at least the details are still under wraps. abc's mary bruce traveling with the president. >> reporter: president obama arrived yesterday in mexico city where the economy tops the agenda during his three-day tour of latin america. the issue of immigration reform, however, will be hard to ignore. >> i'm optimistic about us getting this done because it's the right thing to do. we've seen leaders from both parties indicate that now is the time to get comprehensive immigration reform done. if we're going to get that done now is the time to do it. >> reporter: with congress poised to overhaul the nation's immigration laws mr. obama will have to tread carefully while he's here. any public comments he makes could impact the delicate negotiations back home. although immigration and border security will consume much of the conversati
of the "washington post." fair to say president obama has put himself in a box on syria. he kept talking for months about red lines, game changers, but he's clearly mindful of the bad intelligence that led to the invasion of iraq, and it's also clear, he's never wanted to get involved in syria. is there a graceful way out? >> what he's trying to do now is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying, yes, we did indeed use sarin gas on those people. short of that, i don't think he's going to do anything. the situation is so well advanced now. might have been different if we moved in there earlier. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 people i don't think is going to go on at least arguably incomplete evidence that there's been these chemical weapons used. so my sense is, he doesn't want to do anything. for now at least he isn't going to do anything. >> do you think there's a downside in terms of his credibility in the middle east? >> it won't bother people going about their daily lives in amer

of obama care. i found that fascinating. >> bill: not true. >> while we're talking about books. i have a book coming out soon and i hope you will plug it it's called "killing garfield." it's a real page-turner. >> bill: already written by what's her name the good historian out of kansas, i believe. but, look, what i picked up here at the correspondent's dinner were two things. lack of g.o.p. presence. very few republicans there the press is not skeptical of president obama. you have written a book about him. slobbering obama care. along liberal lines. president obama is a liberal. most of the preg press is liberals. they like him. there is no skepticism anymore, bernie, about the failure of certain policies. it's like okay, so what? so what? so what the economy remains -- so what afghanistan is going down the drain and we have that in a couple of minutes? so what? that's what -- >> right. a couple of points on that. you mentioned in the lead-in to this segment that they like him. you are absolutely right. and never underestimate the power of likability in any facet of life. they have a
? >> doing all right. your lead story talking about president obama's et putti house democrats in a tough spot. how is that helping? >> health care's become a problem in general for democrats right now if you think about it in two different areas. one, the budget that the president put forward does go after entitlement spending in a specific way which you talk about a lot on this show. for house democrats, they feel like running off the election that complicates their lives because they like to attack republicans for trying to reduce spending on entitlement programs. that's one box. there's a new poll out this morning by the kaiser foundation that shows that support for the obama health care law has dropped eight points. it's now at about 34%. and you saw in the debate last night where she was distancing herself from the obama health care law. i think there's a lot of democrats worried that the implementation has been very difficult, unpopular, particularly for small business owners and it could be very problematic for them in off-year elections, much like it was in 2010. >> i read a "wal
the national interest or is it about politics? we take it up in tonight's chalk talk. >>> president obama wants immigration legislation on his desk and he means right away. the gang of eight wants an immediate vote. senate judiciary vote chairman patrick leahy is holding three hearings on the bill. one last friday, one today, one tomorrow, they're done. which had to be -- the one tomorrow, homeland security secretary napolitano withdrew the hearing because of developments in boston. why do you think they're in such a rush, because a rush it is? this is even a faster pace than obama care. we all know how that turned out. almost half of our senators weren't in office the last time immigration reform was being debated, back in 2006 and '07. you would think people would want more hearings to get a few answers to some questions, to hear the american people on this burning issue. everyone keeps talking about a path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants. i don't know anyone who believes that number. some say more, some say fewer. but don't you think those congressional hearings
, if not tougher, than the bush people. >> narrator: no one in the obama administration would talk to frontline about top secret america. but the president had reauthorized almost all of the dark side operations. greystone-- the hunt for bin laden and al-qaeda-- continued. >> authorities were continued that we were originally granted by president bush beginning shortly after 9/11. those were all picked up, reviewed and endorsed by the obama administration. >> narrator: at home, the president decided to expand the growth of top secret america. >> they've done nothing to roll it back. they've done very little to look inside of it, to say what is it that works, what doesn't work, what do we really need, and in this time of economic hardship, what don't we need? >> narrator: the president understood the political realities. >> there's going to be a terrorist strike some day, and when there is, if you've reduced the terrorism budget, the other party, whoever the other party is at the time, is going to say that you were responsible for the terrorist strike because you cut back the budget. and so it's

" today. do we have the graphic. in the areas he does control, obama has to talk less about hurdles he faces and more forcefully about what he's going to get. where does he go now? where can he move on this stuff? >> think it's hard for him to move. i love e.j. he's a genuine friend not one of those people you say is your friend. he's a rell frieal friend. i agree with him all the time. we're beating on this president when you have to go back to that pat toomey quote go guns that shows liberal fantasies about how the president has to get back in the game, be tougher, make better deals, it is not going to work. he's really got people who are determined to see him fail. i do agree with the tone, however. the tone of late has been little wi whinier than we would like to hear. in terms of what he can do, it's hard. >> there seems to be this sort of mindset from him, you said whining but this sort of i'm done with it. you see the way the people treat me. what am i supposed to do? that's not good for democrats to have that opinion in 2013. >> this is always been something of his approach. he

at about 10:00 eastern. up next, we will take you to the 50 minute news conference, president obama talking to the news reporters in the press room. president obama: hello, everybody. hello. good afternoon -- or good morning, everybody. i am here to answer questions in honor of ed henry, as he wraps up his tenure as president of the white house correspondents' association. ed, because of that, you get the first question. congratulations. >> thank you, sir. i really appreciate that. and i hope we can go back to business and being mad at each other in a little bit. president obama: i'm not mad at you. >> ok. thank you. i appreciate it. president obama: you may be mad at me. [laughter] >> i'm not. [laughter] a couple questions on national security. on syria, you said that the red line was not just about chemical weapons being used but being spread, and it was a game changer, seemed cut and dry. and now your administration seems to be suggesting that line is not clear. do you risk u.s. credibility if you don't take military action? and then on benghazi, there are some survivors of that terror
. >> david, let's talk about obama's wars and his use of modern warfare on the cyber wars as you mentioned, and then the drone wars. as we've discussed, these wars are prosecuted without congressional say-so. are largely unaccountable. rules of engagement have really yet to be codfide on both fronts. they are targeted but there is serious collateral damage in the case of drones, obviously innocent civilians have been killed. as you point out, that was sort of unintentionally replicated around the world, that virus. i wonder if we can take a historical look for a second. obama might be a nobel peace prize winner for his aversion to traditional warfare but he has been a pioneer commando in terms of modern warfare. how do you think the longview of history will parcel out those two opposing ends of the psalm coin? >> you know, it is a great question. as i reported on confront and conceal, i got to a point where i reached an american official, worked for president bush, worked for president obama, worked with them quite closely, and this official said to me, you know, what was surprising about
days. >> wow. that's too much. thanks. let's go now to washington, and president obama in his weekly address today talking about those big sequester cuts and how congress quickly moved to bring furloughed air traffic controllers back on the job. the furloughs by the faa had caused airport delays across this country. well, here's the president's take today. >> this week, the sequester hurt travelers who were stuck for hours in airports and on planes and arightly frustrated by it. and maybe because they fly home each weekend the members of congress who insisted on these cuts finally realized that they actually apply to them, too. >> nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker is at the white house for us. with a good saturday morning to you, kristen. i know the white house has been calling this a band-aid since the senate passed it on thursday night. so, will the president sign it once it hits his desk? >> hey, good morning, alex. and welcome to d.c. always great to have you here. you know, despite calling it a band-aid he is expected to sign this legislation in to law. and it stand
of culture around obama. i think we cannot not talk about that either. people want to be a part of that, whether they agree with his politics or disagree, this is a really popular president. he is the toast of the town in d.c. so to speak and people no matter what side of the aisle they're on they want to be part of the glitz and glamour that comes with this celebrity president. they want to take part of it whether they agree or not. >> cenk: we got to leave it there, but it comes with a price. that's the problem. if you cross the politicians then you're not going to get invited to the parties any more. they never cross the politicians. they never tell the truth that's why you don't trust the media. what are we doing about jobs. that's what people actually care about. since president obama has been re-elected, republicans and democrats, nothing about jobs. nothing. all right, when we come back we're talking about how to fix that system. how to get money out of politics and exactly to brian's point about what people are dissatisfied with, and what republicans and democrats agree on in th
, independent, tough business woman. if you notice one last point, i push back on the obama budget, so let's talk about independent reach across the aisles and being reasonable. i told you no one tells me what to do. i am an independent business woman and i will reach across the aisles.
